Abstract

"The continued expansion of the nuclear reactor facility and the nuclear engineering program makes it desirable that a neutron spectrometer be available at the reactor facility. This unit would be available for use in graduate and undergraduate laboratories and for graduate research.

A single crystal, white radiation spectrometer including collimator, automatic controls, and shielding was designed and constructed.

The performance of the unit was checked using LiF and Cu crystals. A rocking crystal curve and a θ - 2θ curve was obtained with each crystal. The effective neutron temperature was then determined from the LiF crystal θ - 2θ curve"--Abstract, page ii.
